Some mobile phone games blow you away with nifty graphics. Some mobile phone games keep you gripped with a riveting story. Some mobile phone games keep you hooked by pitting you against your friends.
But some mobile phone games are more addictive than nicotine-filled, chocolate-covered crack. These games have a magical hold over us, always sitting at the back of our minds, making us hear little voices that whisper "Plaaaaaaay meeeeee...plaaaaaaay meeeeeee", every waking moment of the day. We play them every chance we get, we love them, and we just cant help ourselves.
Here are the top 10 most addictive mobile phone games, all available on both Android and iPhone. Play them at your own risk.
New Star Soccer
When God created smack, it was just a first attempt at making something as addictive as New Star Soccer. It’s taken over pretty much every spare moment of my life - I play it on the tube, I play it on the toilet, I can’t get to sleep unless I’ve had at least a few minutes with it. So much more than just a football game, New Star Soccer tasks you with taking a teenage footballer up to the international big time, winning over sponsors and girlfriends along the way, keeping bosses and team mates happy while buying new boots to boost your stats and earning goal bonuses to fund your ever-more extravagant lifestyle. It’s insane - it looks like a Commodore 64 game, but I reckon I’ve played it more than recent big name titles like Far Cry 3. Just writing this is making me itch for another match.
